Rumer Willis And Val Chmerkovskiy’s Judge’s Choice Dance


The judges act as mentors to the couples and take over creative control. They pick the music, the concept, the costumes and the lighting. They won’t judge the couple they mentor.

The Dancing With The Stars semifinals were amazing!

Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy, Riker Lynch and Allison Holker, Nastia Liukin, Sasha Farber and Derek Hough, Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess faced off during Week 9 of DWTS to make their way into the finals. But it was Noah’s proposal to his girlfriend that was clearly the most shocking moment of the evening.

Each of the semifinalists had been on the top of the leaderboard at one point. Len wasn’t surprised. Rumer, Riker and Nastia were always top dancers while Noah was always a fan-favorite even if he wasn’t always the judges’ favorite.

And Week 9 was an incredible, emotional week of DWTS. The dances were so good that Bruno felt like it was the finals.


In the judges’ choice category, Bruno picks the theme from “Swan Lake” for a Rumer/Val contemporary fusion. Bruno seeks passion, lyricism, range and personality. “I don’t know why everyone assumes that if you’re from Eastern Europe you do ballet,” a befuddled Val says during rehearsal.

Bruno goes on about wanting Val shirtless and in white tights, though he’s covered up for the dance. It’s a neat trick of lighting that makes Rumer go from white swan to black. She swirls upward into Val’s arms before one lift. At times, there’s a softness we typically don’t see from Val. It’s Bruno, yet it’s also distinctly Rumer and Val. It’s not 100% contemporary or ballet, though – is that why it’s fusion?

Len utters, “Bruno, great concept. Val, wonderful choreography. Rumer, brilliant dancing.” Carrie Ann declares it “genius mad.” Bruno exalts in the skybox until Erin cuts him off. Score: 30 (and Bruno pumps his fists at those 10s even more than Rumer and Val do).

Incredible performances by all four couples during the semifinals. It will be a difficult decision to make by the public in the end.

All of them are giving their best and their all. Their efforts don’t go unnoticed.

Their competitiveness is there.

The all around improvement since the show began is palpable.

Guess who I’m rooting for?

  1. My granddaughter,12, attends the most prestigious middle school in Miami for performing arts. Miami Dade is a school district with over 450,000 students ! She does ballet, jazz dance, modern hip hop, karate, and gymnastics. She is astonishing. Her personal ballet coach was one of the premier ballerinas for the Cuban National Ballet.
